Gua Sha involves repeated pressured stokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edge. The smooth edge is placed against the pre-oiled skin surface, pressed down firmly, and then moved down the muscles along the pathway of the acupuncture meridians, across the surface of the skin.
We use gua sha for muscle pain, mainly to upper back, neck and shoulders. This has also been known to help with headaches, neck pain and shoulder pain.
